Why Rianne and Rianne's Wardrobe?!

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Monday, January 11, 2010 Under: Callous
Talk about things I never thought I'd talk about on a blog...
First things first... I've been asked before why the main protagonist of Callous is a girl (considering I am a guy).  My usual response is, why not?  Does it make a difference whether my main character is male or female?  The point is Rianne may be female but really, it doesn't matter.  She has the same problems, thinks the same way, and goes through life's struggles like any other person, medically-trained or not.

Then came the day I realized she had run out of things to wear.  I put her in scrubs and a white coat often, but outside the hospital she has to wear the usual clothes.  I met this challenge by looking at what female visitors in the hospital I work in are wearing.  If I think something someone I saw is wearing is cool and fits Rianne's personality, she gets to wear it.  Sometimes a dress I see on TV makes it to the strip.



Lately, however, I've hit a creative slump when it comes to fashion.  So I have actually found myself consulting fashion and style websites... yeah, you read that right... trying to find some clothes that fit Rianne.  My wife's fashion magazines have helped sometimes as well.  The screenshot you see above is from one such site that details the color trends for this winter.

Ah yes, it's one of the challenges in making Callous but it's all good fun.
